Landmark ‘Pot vs Anaheim’ Appeal to Set Precedent This Week

California’s balkanized approach to medical marijuana can mean profits or jail depending on where a patient lives. The most restrictive cities like Anaheim, Calif., have re-criminalized the drug, thereby setting up an appeals court showdown scheduled to end some time in the next seven days.

The California’s 4th Appellate District Division Three will issue its opinion of ‘Qualified Patients vs. Anaheim’ by July 19th, capping a years-long appeal watched by thousands of patients, politicians, lawyers, and press. Qualified Patients‘ lawyer Anthony Curiale says cities cannot make growing and distributing medical marijuana illegal, because Prop 215 and SB420 took away the criminal penalties for doing so.
